  • Final clean-up

    Before leaving your home for the last time, your builder will do a thorough clean-up of the renovated areas of your home and any other affected areas.

  • Final inspection

    Once the work is completed, you and your builder will conduct an inspection of the work. This is the time to take a close look at everything and note any problems or imperfections before you make the final payment.

  • Insurance

    Insurance is often the last thing on a homeowner's mind when making renovation plans. Yet, before any work begins, you should make sure that you are well covered during and after the renovation, in case of damage, injury or theft. Then you can proceed with confidence.

  • Living with renovation

    Once your project gets underway, you and your builder need to work together closely to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

  • The renovation contract

    Whenever you hire someone to perform renovation work on your home, whether the job is small or large, you should get a proper, written contract.

  • Variations to the works

    Once work begins on your home, both you and your builder will have one aim: to get the project done well, on time and on schedule.

  • Warranty follow-up

    Your builder's commitment to you doesn't end when the work is completed. As specified in your contract, you will have a warranty on all work done for a specified period, usually six months.
